Dale Schulz - Nanaimo - 'As he sees it' - June 22/16

Lifelong Nanaimo resident, professional artist and illustrator Dale Schulz 'sees' much of Nanaimo many of us simply walk by without giving a second thought.

Through the eyes of an artist the everyday can become almost magical and with a few simple photos of his daily walks, Dale captures and shares some of that magic on his Facebook page.

The following is the most recent example of what Dale sees when he walks about our lovely seaside community many of us just take for granted.

Dale's Post - June 22/16
I shot 85 frames on my walk with Indy this morning but will only bore you folks with the best Baker's Dozen!

We start out with a little portrait of Indy standing beside an aging skateboard ramp at the end of Farquhar Street - I loved the blue and yellow in this scene!

Next on to Hecate Street where I shot some lovely Chicory flowers in a vacant lot near Milton Street - and an ‪#‎abandonedchair‬ on the other side of the street. Then one of my favourite rocks in Nob Hill Park and another chair on Hecate - this one may be yard art rather than abandoned.

As we descended the stairs at the end of Hecate to Cavan Street I shot a picture of a beautiful Arbutus Tree.

Downtown on Commercial Street we saw one of our favourite downtown folks - Riel - who is a most pleasant fellow and always has a smile and kind words for us.

At the waterfront we got down onto the docks for a black and white photo of the pilings that support the Lighthouse Bistro; and captured the orange floats that have been capturing my eye the last few days. In Maffeo Sutton Park I took a pic of the footbridge over the lagoon.

Back into downtown we paused to shoot a 'Commercial Street Morning' scene - folks enjoying coffee and breakfast at Gabriel's Café. I also took a picture of the Vault Café - this lovely building was designed by Francis Rattenbury and was originally the Merchant's Bank of BC.

The last shot is of some beautiful flowers on Victoria Road. I'm not sure what they are - but they look like a kind of lily to me.
